[inaudible] [applause] >> all right. next speaker please. >> supervisor wiener i cannot thank you enough for this legislation. my only complaint it's a little over due but i can't thank you enough. i am a fourth generation san franciscan. i lived in the area for 35 years and seen it through good times and bad. this is amazing situation i think. these men have turned the castro into a peep show, and we're not just an adult community. we have families in the castro, and i do not have a family. i am not from the valley. i'm not part of a clique. i'm one of the everyday citizens you mentioned in your remarks and i am appalled by this behavior and if the merchants don't realize this is affecting their business -- i have boys and we eat and shop in the cast ro. they will not bring the young people in our family to the castro and we shop and go out to dinner on 24th street because of what is happening in the castro so it's affecting the merchants

so glad to be joined not only by senator leno and assembly man amaino and david chiu and scott wiener as well. they all want to get in on this great celebration because it's wonderful for our city. i have often said our city and our strength is our international status and we do that with all the sister cities, with all of the flag raisings, but this is kind of new. what i said to our counsel general it's special because it's kind of bringing forth the things that we have done and the things that we enjoy doing and placing it into a recognized celebration that goes for a long time, so i am proud to launch this here in san francisco, and if i may to not only let you know that it's a great honor to have the italian ambassador here in the united states. it's a great honor for it to be proclaimed italian culture day in san francisco. if i may present this to the counsel general.

'm supervisor scott wiener. i have the honor of representing district 8 including the castro on the board of supervisors. and which district are formerly represented by harvey milk. supervisor olague likes to remind me we share the district 5 represented by milk. and we're here today to remember supervisor harvey milk and mayor george moscone who were brutally assassinated decades ago. and we gather every year to remember, and not just to remember and to mourn, but also to remember the positives and to remember frankly both of these great men and what they contributed to our community. you know, with respect to harvey milk, there will never, ever be another harvey milk in our community in terms of what he represented for our community in terms of a step forward. we are now elected lgbt peep to office and harvey was such an incredible trail blazer, not? in just getting elected, but in being a great leader and always holding his head high for our community. and i know when i was first sworn into office, one of the things that i always kept in mind was something that i understand harvey to h

by scott wiener. i wasn't asked by by bill wyco. i wasn't asked by anybody. and i get every notice that you conceivably have. in a lawsuit settlement, back in the '80s, i insisted that i get cad ex he's. i'm the only person that gets them and i read them. * i am not the cad ex a stamp on the back of a permit. but if they issue them, you will find me on that list because of a lawsuit settlement that should not have to come to this point. i know because i get the notices that no one else gets what i get. i spread the word as effectively as it is when i get notices. this is not the right way to do it. go back, supervisor. go back, staff, and have a real outreach process. i would be more than glad to participate in a real outreach process about amended c-e-q-a. i know [speaker not understood] because i lived them. but this is a wrong process. the fact that developers attorneys are happy probably means that they were consulted. who was the consultation with? between a mr. wyco said he didn't have any e-mails. i asked for his e-mails. he doesant have any. maybe he didn't talk to anybody, but i di
as scott wiener pushes out the lgbt youth because they have no where to stay and this is about rich people who own their homes and don't want to see less than hot naked people and kids in the neighborhood. the superficial desires of the rich shouldn't how the weigh the minorities wearing clothing and big houses is like that. no nude or homeless person has ever bothered me and if a nude or homeless person cause gz trouble punish them for what they have done. this is attempt to legalize bigging on tree and if they don't want to conform they can wear clothes. we should all have the opportunity to chose what we wear and when and when we wear it. i was born nude and public nudity is a civil right. thank you. >> thank you. next speaker. >> hi. i am tommy. i have lived in the castro for 21 years. i have been a activist for years and 61 years old and i mention that because i remember a time when there were controversies about gay men and drag queens gathering in public spaces because people were offended by gay men who were drag queens in public spaces, offended and some of the things tha
of the committee. to my left is supervisor scott wiener. supervisor maly a cohen is absent today. our clerk is derek evans. mr. evans, can you please give us the announcements? >> yes. please make sure all electronic devices are off, copies submitted to the clerk. items acted upon today will appear on december 4, 2012 san francisco board of supervisors agenda unless stated. >> thank you. we have six items on the agenda today. but i've been notified by supervisor olague, item number 5, she has urged us to continue that to item on the call of the chair. that is the resolution to remove all management proposals and activities derived from the sharp park conceptual restoration alternatives report's alternative a18 from the environmental impact report for the san francisco recreation and park department's significant natural resource areas management plan, and to consider proposals and alternatives for the future of sharp park golf course through a separate and complete california environmental quality act review process. so, even though i'll move to continue that to the call of the chair, we s
was initially written, it really benefited the food truck owners. that is why scott wiener's office got involved and trying to amend it. the parking spaces, the trucks pull up into the parking spaces and no one is giving them tickets. they are there from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00. contractors are losing their loading zone spaces when they pay the city contractor license fees to park their trucks there. no one is enforcing it. very confusing. bacon bacon is healthy. the food has been an issue as well. it has not been discussed. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. next speaker. >> good afternoon. my name is phillip stephanie and i'm the owner cosmic american food event. i came here today just to say something really quick. i have a background in music, played in a touring rock and punk band for the last ten years. touring all over the united states, and i have seen how food trucks and food parks in cities like portland and austin have helped make these cities more colorful and diverse places for food and places for people to hang out, especially late-night. and my truck does a lot of late-night par
-- supervisor scott wiener. >> this turnout's shows how significant this is to the future of the city. we were with a smaller group earlier. i will stress that san francisco is a city with a dichotomy going on. in many ways, we are a cutting edge city in terms of technology, food, transportation, there are all sorts of things where we are ahead of the curve. we attract a lot of people like you who are forward-thinking and want to do things in a different and more innovative way. we're also a really old school city. the change is challenging. david and i talk about this a lot. we're trying to do things differently. we get a lot of reflexive push back, whether you are talking about cars sharing on streets, or changing zoning to create new housing to make the city more affordable and inclusive. you have those kinds of difficult conversations. so much of this is about educating the city as a whole from all generations and perspectives. our housing policies and transportation systems are not always sustainable. if we want to remain a cutting edge and diversity that draws all sorts of people here, w
committee. my name is sean elsbernd and today we have scott wiener who is appointed to the committee today and joined shortly by carmen chu. our clerk is mr. evans. i would ask anybody who has a cell phone put it on silent. as you know we have a lot of people here today. we have an over flow room in 250 that has the two big tvs so you observe. i ask after you comment in public comment you move into the board chambers so the other people can file in. you will be able to see everything and would be a smooth transition for everybody. with that mr. clerk will you call item one. >> item one is amending the codes and prohibiting nudity as public streets, sidewalks, parklets, and plazas and on public transit vehicles, stations, platform and stops, except as part of permitted parades, fairs, and festivals. >> thank you mr. clerk. item one is supervisor wiener's option. >> thank you for coming out today. i think it shows there is a lot of passion on all sides of this issue. mr. chairman we have before us legislation restricting public nudity in parts of san francisco. this legislation whic
. >> we don't want you to chase she's suspects don't. >> reporter: on tuesday, scott wiener said these are a problem that must be addressed. he will call for a meeting for the public safety committee. >>> the rain has finally pushed through this evening. but we did see rain in a couple locations, red wood city about 2 inches of rain. and half an inch in livermore. now we are seeing drier conditions. the rain pushes down to the south and the east. even seeing some clearing skies out there. we are going to be seeing fog through the overnight hours. areas of dense fog, actually, and that is going to lead to drizzle in some locations as well. into the afternoon we will see careering, temperatures are going to -- clearing, temperatures will stay cool tomorrow, but they'll warm up into the weekend with drier weather on tap. tomorrow morning, 40s and 50s around the bay area. 53 for san francisco, upper 40s for the inland valleys and low 50s in the south bay. for the afternoon, low 60s, 62 in palo alto and san jose. low 60s for the inland valleys and the east bay shores with the exceptio
the one recent betrayalal. when someone like david chiu or scott wiener prevents the friends from being accountable they are abusing the public that has lasted for over decades and costs millions of dollars and the damage to the democracy is more important and the lies more than the money. thank you. >> next speaker. >> i would like the over head to remain on the screen through the presentation until i remove my last slide. i would like to talk to you again about mayor lee. he started out his tenure with the "i won't run if i am appointed" and we know how that worked out, and i changed slide and grabbed the wrong one. he will attempt to over turn an election using a goldberg machine to do it. however we will ignore misconduct with pointed officials under his control. this say letter sent to the mayor and the ethnics commission with regard to jewel gomez and violated the sunshine ordinance and by the task force. "after publicly discussing the matter and the library meeting at issue the ethics determined that the president jewel gomez willfully violated the sun shine ordinance and sh
for supervisor scott wiener and unfortunately he couldn't make it this afternoon. many of these locations where the spots exist are disappearing. along upper market street most of the gas stations parking lots are redeveloped and we are losing the spaces that exist. car share availability is important to the city and we want to make not having a car as easy as possible but with those without vehicles there is always a need maybe to go to the store or go out of town. while we want to encourage access to car share the planning code doesn't always do this. if a developer wants to include those spots they're treated the same way as private spots when counting towards maximums. this is not an incentive. a project at market and castro and didn't seek the parking above that ratio. this is good and we want to encourage it. even though the community wanted the park share in the building because of the spots loss because of redevelopment and the developer was supportive of that he didn't feel he could eat into the .5 parking and therefore there is no car share at market and castro at this locati
is an ordinance designating twin peaks tavern as 401 castro street as a land mark. >> sponsor scott wiener. >> thank you very much, mr. chairman. today before us is an ordinance to landmark the twin peaks tavern at 401 castro street right at the corner of castro and market. twin peaks is truly one of the gems of the castro and of the san francisco lgbt community and has been since it opened 40 years ago in 1972. and perhaps most unique about twin peaks is that it was the very first gay bar with large visible windows so that anyone walking by would see who was inside. until then and in a lot of areas of the world we still have this, you have gay bars with windows that are hidden so people can sneak in because they are not comfortable or even safe doing so. so twin peaks was a trail blazer in that respect. the bar symbolizes the lgbt community's coming out in san francisco, that our community would no longer be in the shadows and we see since then the great strides we have made as an lgbt community and around the world. i will say on a personal note i recall the very first time i came to
